Mina, the inspiration for the Mina Learns Chinese books

The inspiration

Our little Mina, the inspiration behind it all! As a mom, it was important for me to give my daughter the opportunity to become bilingual. With very limited Chinese skills I knew that it would be a challenging endeavor. I searched for well-illustrated bilingual Chinese children's books and found very little in the market, especially ones with Pinyin so I decided to create my own and share them with the world.
